Oregon Youth Authority > Web site
The Oregon Youth Authority (OYA) holds youth offenders accountable and provides opportunities for reformation. OYA exercises legal and physical custody of offenders committed to OYA by juvenile courts, and physical custody of young offenders committed to the Oregon Department of Corrections by adult courts. The agency serves the state’s most delinquent youth ages 12 through 24 who commit crimes before their 18th birthday.
OYA manages the supervision and administration of youth correctional facilities, state youth probation and parole services, and community out-of-home placements for youth. OYA also provides funding for community-delivered delinquency prevention and intervention initiatives.
Through evidence-based treatment and rehabilitation programs, classroom education, vocational training, and assistance with daily living skills, OYA helps youths successfully transition back into their communities.
OYA operates close custody or secure transition facilities in Albany, Burns, Florence, Grants Pass, La Grande, Salem, Tillamook, Warrenton and Woodburn and provides probation and parole services in all of Oregon’s 36 counties. During 2012, approximately 750 youths were in OYA’s close custody or secure transition programs and 1,050 were under OYA’s supervision on probation or parole. An additional 20,000 youth offenders were served by Oregon’s counties.
